Gold Investor Opportunity Window / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Investments that are denominated in a given currency include money-market funds, bonds, mortgages, bank deposits, and other instruments.

What Happens to Gold if We Enter a Recession or Great Depression? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research : Mayan prophecies aside, many of the senior Casey Research staff believe that economic, monetary, and fiscal pressures could come to a head this year. The massive buildup of global debt, continued reckless deficit spending, and the lack of sound political leadership to reverse either trend point to a potentially ugly tipping point. What happens to our investments if we enter another recession or – gulp – a depression?

QE Dysfunctional Implications for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome investors seem disappointed with the Federal Reserve’s apparent failure to endorse another round of quantitative easing. While the fragility of the EU continues high, the ECB also seems to have no taste for another round of quantitative easing. All of this is causing great unhappiness. Reality seems to have clashed with the child like expectations of so many investment strategists. That is understandable, for the whole house of cards and fantasies of much of the hedge fund industry are dependent on a continued flow of easy money. The rest of us should be somewhat more pleased that the Federal Reserve is not pursuing QE-Dysfunctional.

Do you trust the banks? Is there money under your bed? Gold Safe Alternative / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month it was reported that over £5.6 billion in cash is estimated to be kept in peoples’ homes; out of the banking system

It works out at around £270 per person; this is a lot of money to be sat around avoiding the banking system.

The statistic was announced by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), the body responsible for compensating savers when a bank fails; an organisation which bases its entire existence on an un-backed paper money system.

Silver’s Trend and the Death of Technical Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Steve_St_Angelo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe death of technical analysis has arrived.  What took place in the markets (especially in the precious metals) on April 3rd & 4th proves this in spades.  There were several calls made prior to the takedown, by some very well known individuals in the precious metal field, that became NULL & VOID when either bottoms or chart patterns failed.

The Federal Reserve Did It Again to Gold Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Easy come, easy go. Gold and silver prices received a boost last week as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke appeared to place more quantitative easing back on the table. In a speech at the National Association for Business Economics, he noted some positive signs in the job market, but said the Fed can aid economic growth by “continued accommodative policies.” However, these gains in precious metals have been quickly erased as the Federal Reserve continues to play with the hearts of investors.

Institutional Investors Continue Gold and Silver Buying Spree / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Anthony_David

The global silver market was pretty shaken up in 2011 when silver bullion prices dropped from a high $49 to $32 and then again from $43 to $28. Investors around the world have been reacting differently to the price upheavals which triggered the most paranoia in October 2011. However, about 50% of investors have turned the fall into an opportunity and are aggressively buying the lower-priced silver. Considering the uncertain financial future, the decision to hold silver bullion instead of fiat currency certainly appears to be a wise one.

Where and When to Place Your Gold Investment Bets? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Casey Research : Let's explore the advantages of saving in gold and silver over dollars. Here's a hypothetical look at what could occur over the remainder of this decade.

The charts below compare saving $100/month in gold and silver vs. an interest-bearing money-market account. For our projections, we assumed gold's average annual gain of 18% since 2001 will continue through 2020. For the money-market account, we used an annual interest rate of 1% in 2012 and added 0.5% each year, so that by 2020 it's earning 5%.

Is it Safe to Start Buying Gold Stocks Yet? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: David_Banister

One of the most common questions I field from my forecast and trading subscribers is can we buy Gold stocks yet? We have seen Gold consolidating and correcting following a 34 fibonacci month rally that I discussed last fall was going to top out around 1900 per ounce. This type of rally went from October of 2008 to August of 2011 and we saw Gold rally from $680 to $1900 per ounce during that time.

Is the Chinese Economy Driving Gold Prices? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Riley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe sometimes miss the bigger picture, when we focus solely on the U.S. economy. This certainly seemed like the case in 2011, when precious metals corrected sharply in the second half of the year, despite a new U.S. easing effort in the form of ‘operation twist’. In particular, we can take our eye off the Chinese economy, which I shall examine below.

Crude Oil Under Pressure / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice that today's swoon in nearby NYMEX crude oil has pressed to a new corrective low at 101.49 off its March 1 high at $110.55. It just so happens that this morning's new low for the move has not been confirmed by my 4-hour RSI momentum gauge, which is our first warning signal that the selling pressure might be drying up for oil and the U.S. Oil Fund ETF (USO).
